Are you living in another country or traveling overseas and need to notarize documents online? Look no further than NotaryLive! 

Our online notary service is the perfect solution for world travelers or Americans who are living abroad. 

In this article, we will explain why NotaryLive is a great fit for international travelers, highlighting the convenience and benefits of our platform. 


1. NotaryLive: Your International Notary Solution 

If you're traveling overseas, you might be wondering if you can still notarize documents online. 

The answer is yes (with some requirements)! 

NotaryLive is here to help, providing a convenient and secure solution for notarization, no matter where you are in the world. 


2. Verified Identification Options

At NotaryLive, we understand that not all customers may have US identification. However, our platform is designed to accommodate individuals from all over the world. 

While US identification is not technically required, it is essential to have enough publicly available data in US records to be verified, regardless of the type of identification you possess. 

However, for the majority of international individuals who may not have a presence in US records, we strongly recommend using a verifier from the US.

This is because they are most likely to have the US-based data necessary to complete to verification process successfully. 


3. Using a Verifier for Identity Verification

If you don't have US identification or enough publicly available data in US records, don't worry! 

NotaryLive offers an alternative option for identity verification – a verifier from the US. 

A verifier is someone who can vouch for your identity and confirm your information. They should be a trusted individual who has access to the necessary US-based data to complete the verification process. This option is especially beneficial for those outside the US who may not have US identification or a presence in US records. 


4. Common Documents That Need Notarization

Documents requiring notarization from American international travelers or those abroad can vary based on the country and the purpose of the document. 

However, the following are some examples of common documents that require notarization: 

  • Wills & Trust Agreements
  • Advanced Instructions
  • Agreements for custody & guardianship
  • Executorships
  • Documents In Court
  • Legal Authority
